Hey again, I was wondering if it is possible to have a setup (as shown below) work, and if so/or/ if not, how would you go about doing this? My theatre dept at my school has fallen to the way side recently due to us receiving two new teachers who arent of much help. I want to know if you have a scrim, backlit (and ONLY the scrim being lit, nothing infront, nothing behind it) if you can use it as a cyc-ish thing. Hehe. bckdrop space scrim | :  | :  | :  | : trees I haven't use a scrim for anything too "complicated" before, just seen it used. If i was to place fixtures behind the scrim (in the area marked "space") and use it to wash the rear of the scrim with a blue color, on the other side would you see the blue wash only? The backdrop and everything in between? nothing? I want to have the whole show have the backdrop seen; however, during one special instance, I want everything to go out except a funky special in one small area around a set piece (WAY far away DS of the scrim on the apron), and have a simple blue "cyc" effect with the silowhett(sp) of the trees. They will be creepy sort of trees when silowetted, but have color on them so when lights are up on the front of them they appear as part of the forest. I think it would work, but would it show as much as I'd like it to? *see picture for details* I don't really have any other options than trying this out, and if not you're welcome to suggest things that I might be able to tweak and alter for our budget and set. I'm a student, not a teacher so I won't be able to go out and buy anything really unless I get them to, so...hehe, good luck to me. rough image: Any help would be appreciated.
